For Snow Leopard, Xcode 3.2.6 is recommended. Xcode 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 for Snow Leopard are not recommended because they are not free so MacPorts is tested much less well on those versions and you are likely to run into more problems when using them. 

You do not need to reinstall MacPorts if you only change the Xcode version.
